Access to water

Cochranites are concerned about our water supply, especially as our community continues to grow.

Currently, we have enough water licensing to support our population up to 47,000 people. We’re also planning for our future water licensing needs.

We’re actively collaborating with the Provincial government to address these challenges so Cochrane can grow sustainably.

What is water licensing?

In Alberta, municipalities are responsible for providing water and wastewater services to residents. Water allocation is managed by the Government of Alberta through a licensing program.
